's plan. democratic leader nancy pelosi told me last night, ceos have been very understanding of the plan set forth by the white house. the business community is willing to accept rate increases. they are really making more concession than john boehner. eric cantor says republicans are not going to adjourn this year until a deal is reached. is that a sign of early capitulation? he knows republicans can't go home to their districts with absolutely nothing to show for it. that's not what the american people voted for. john boehner says he's willing to stick around town to get a deal done? >> i'll be here and i'll be available at any moment to sit down with the president, to get serious about solving this problem. >> but president obama says john boehner's presence is not the solution, it's the problem. >> the holdup right now is that speaker boehner took a position, you think the day after the campaign, that said, we're willing to bring in revenue, but we're not willing to increase rates. and i've just explained to you why we don't think that works. >> senate majority leader harry reid has

in medicare. that's number one. on senator mcconnell's list of things he'd like to see done. nancy pelosi is even talking about, you know, it's not about race. it's about revenue. it's about getting the money we need to reduce the deficit. so atmospherics are better. we've got a chance. >> it sounds a lot better. we also try and figure out what the plan actually looks like just in terms of the ratio of spending cuts to tax increases or revenue increases. and there've been a lot of people who've gone back and forth. it started out where we were probably closer to three to one back last summer. and i thought that was what simpson-bowles laid out. then i've also seen something that was circulating last week, suggesting that the simpson-bowles plan really called for a one-to-one ratio. is that true? >> no. what we did is, we took current policy at that time. current policy at that time and bush tax cuts from the top 2% expiring and we took that as the baseline, and then what we did is we reformed the tax code so we could broaden the base, simplify the code and we got about $1 trillion of new
